Sam Sieben scored a pair of touchdowns — including one off a huge block from Jayden Bernemann — as the North Langley Bears edged the Mission Niners 20-19.
The two atom football teams battled on Saturday in Mission.
Kache Potozny came up with huge fumble recovery for the defence while Scott Kortus and the rest of the defensive line also had strong games.
For the second straight week, the North Langley Bears peewee team pitched a shutout.
The Bears went on the road to Mission and blanked the Niners 32-0.
Lucca Patterson keyed the strong defensive effort with a pair of quarterback sacks, a fumble recovery and several tackles.
Reece Fennell, with an interception, and Ryan Heutink, with a fumble recovery, also had turnovers for the defence.
The offence had a balanced attack with Rylan Middleton and Damon Bernemann both finding the end zone twice while Rowen Engele also added a major.
The game began brilliantly for the North Langley Bears as Zach Siegemund scored on a pick-6, staking his Bears to an early 6-0 lead. The bantam football team was playing under the lights last Friday in Chilliwack versus the Giants.
But the Giants scored 35 unanswered points to prevail 35-6.
Despite the loss, there were some positives.
Ciaran Davies had a 20-yard interception return, Callum Middleton and Mitchell Gibbs came through with multiple catches, Chris Morrison was solid on both sides of the ball, Luke Summerville came up with a touchdown-saving tackle and quarterback Jesse Nielsen withstood a relentless Giants pass rush.

Both Isaiah Key and Austin Balzer threw touchdown passes, to Luke Chalk and Adam Brass, respectively, while Charlie May rounded out the scoring with a field goal and four converts.
